TV Show Spotlight: The Lava Field

Hey guys!
Today I have something very unusual. In 2014 an impressive mini-TV-series was produced in Iceland. Well, I can’t let you miss out on this gem!

(Unfortunately I could only find a German trailer, but you get the picture)

 

What is it about?
Detective Helgi Marvin Runarsson is called to a crime scene. What at first appears to be a suicide soon raises many questions. Far more people have a connection to this murder than anyone would have believed. The investigations become dangerous not only to Runarsson, but also to his family…

 

Why should you check it out?
I stumbled upon this one completely by surprise but I have to admit those guys up North really know how to make a good thriller. The plot is gripping, fascinating and really pulls you in. We dive into the unknown depths of the Icelandic underground and are left with a crime story that goes under your skin. Continue reading

TV Show Spotlight: Ash vs. Evil Dead

Hey guys!
I’ve already mentioned this show before but so far neglected to give it a proper introduction. So let me present to you: Ash vs. Evil Dead, a comedy horror show developed by Sam Raimi and based on his homonymous movie series!

 

What is it about?
Our good old friend Ash (played by Bruce Campbell) is living a pretty decent life when all of sudden (because he did something stupid) the Evil Dead show up again, more 30 years after their last encounter. Well, as we all know, Ash is just THE man to stop them…

TV Show Spotlight: The Crown

TV Show Spotlight: Firefly

Hello Folks!
Today’s post is about one of those amazing shows that for some reason never lived to see a second season. There are only 14 episodes (and one movie, but more about that in another post) of Firefly but by now it’s reached 100% cult status.

 

What is it about?
I guess the best way to describe Firefly is as hell of ride. It’s a space western drama that follows the adventures of the Serenity (a Firefly space ship) and its crew. While they are operating on the darker side, making a living mostly with smuggling, things get spiced up when two new and mysterious guests join them on the ship… Continue reading

TV Show Spotlight: Black Mirror

Hello my lovely readers!
Well, Black Mirror is another one of those amazing shows I was super late to check out. However, after episode one I was hooked! So let’s see what Back Mirror is about!

 

What is it about?
This question is not that easy to answer. Each episode has a different theme and tells a different story. They are loosely connected by the fact that technology  plays an integral part. Furthermore, there’s always a rather dark aspect to every episode that will make you question some stuff… Continue reading

TV Show Spotlight: Twin Peaks

Hey Guys!
I spent all of 2016 being excited and waiting for Twin Peaks to return after 14 years. Well, it’s postponed to 2017, so instead I just re-watched the two famous original seasons that gained cult status!

What is it about?
Twin Peaks is a remote town somewhere close to the Canadian border. It’s the kind of place where everybody knows their neighbors and nothing bad could ever happen. Until one day, the corpse of homecoming queen Laura Palmer is found.
FBI agent Dale Cooper heads for Twin Peaks to find out what happened. It soon turns out that many things are not what they appear to be and people seem to be leading a double life… Continue reading
